I suggest that you visit open houses and talk to the agents. Then - this is a MUST - after you've found one you like, talk to ONE MORE, just to be sure.
All the best,
As a buyer you will likely not pay any commission unless you are trying to buy a "by owner" home. In which case the owner may not be willing to pay any commission and will ask the buyer to pay commission if they would like to use an agent. Not the best strategy for a homeowner to use in a buyer's market, but I do see it happen from time to time.
Other than that, the agent gets paid from the seller so I'm really not sure where commission comes into play on your end. My best advise is to look around and find an agent with some experience in the area. When you find a few that you think would work, call them up and let them know your past experience and go from there.
I work the Ascension, Livingston and EBR areas, please feel free to call me anytime.
But, please remember that you always get what you pay for. In Texas, there are always newspaper articles about people that go to Mexico for plastic surgery because they want a doctor that will work for small pay....they end up spending double when they get a doctor that wants to be paid for the work they do to fix the mistakes.....just a point to ponder.
